Wednesday, May 12, 2021
There will be a full closure of the Queens-bound (South) tube of the Queens Midtown Tunnel on Friday, May 14, from 11pm - 11am Saturday May 15. The closure is necessary to accommodate flood mitigation equipment testing.
During this time there will be one lane open in both directions in the Manhattan-bound (North) tube. Drivers seeking travel Queens-bound will be detoured via posted signage to the North tube. Motorists should plan additional travel time or consider an alternate route. We appreciate the patience of our customers.
